New York’s Racetracks

While you’re in Monticello, be sure you check out the 40,000-square foot casino known as the “racino” where there is delicious food and amazing entertainment for all. They don’t call Belmont Park “the Championship Track” for nothing.

Go out to Hempstead and see why the home of the Belmont Stakes has been one of the most highly regarded racetracks in the world for over a century.

The city of Saratoga Springs has an outstanding reputation for racing and horse breeding that goes back nearly two centuries. All racing fans will appreciate the history of the Saratoga Raceway; the oldest racetrack in the United States; as well as its dirt track, turf track, and small inner turf track. 

Belmont Park

First opened in 1905, Belmont Park is a Thoroughbred horse racing track located in the Elmont area of Hempstead, New York. The New York City-area facility has drawn as many as over 120,000 spectators to events like the Belmont Stakes, Mother Goose Stakes and the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic International.

Affectionately known as “the Championship Track,” Belmont Park events are frequently televised on NBC and several cable networks. The park’s ample seating and lawn space also make it an ideal venue for major concerts – past headliners include the likes of Billy Joel and Blondie.

Monticello Casino & Raceway

Dubbed the Mighty M, the Monticello Casino & Raceway is a 40,000-square-foot casino located in Monticello – set in the Catskills Region of southeastern New York. A member of the New York Gaming Association, the Monticello Casino is open daily, and referred to as a “racino.”

Monticello Casino guests are encouraged to check out the Lava Lounge, grab dinner at The Terrace restaurant, or catch live entertainment at HYPE! Established in 1958, the ½ mile, onsite oval racetrack features daily afternoon races.

Saratoga Raceway & Casino

First opened in 1863, the Saratoga Raceway & Casino is a Thoroughbred horse racing track set in Saratoga Springs, New York – north of Albany in the Hudson Valley region. The city of Saratoga Springs has been a leader in horse breeding and racing since as early as the 1840s, and the Saratoga Race Course is the oldest racetrack in the United States.

Operated by the New York Racing Association, the facilities feature a main dirt track, a turf track and a smaller, inner turf track. The course has hosted numerous notable events in its time, including the Travers Stakes, Whitney Handicap, and the Alabama Stakes.
